Besos from the bike lane!
One day while riding her bike in Mt.Tamalpais, Marin County resident Marilyn Price had an idea of getting kids and bicycles together. That idea shortly became Trips for Kids. Founded in 1986, and a non-profit since 1988, Trips for Kids has benefited more than 1200 kids annually.
Truly inspiring story. Click on image or here for the full San Francisco Chronicle article(by Shelah Moody, Chronicle Staff Writer).
Each week, The Chronicle features a Bay Area resident who has won a Jefferson Award for making a difference in his or her community. The awards are administered by the American Institute for Public Service, a national foundation that honors community service. Bay Area residents profiled in The Chronicle are also featured on CBS5-TV and KCBS-AM, which are Jefferson Award media partners, along with The Chronicle.
